Road rage incident in Wichita leads to arrest

Local

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — The Wichita Police Department arrested 51-year-old Tyrone Inkelaar of Wichita Tuesday and booked him on suspicion of simple battery.

Just before noon, April 20, officers responded to an off-duty officer in trouble call at Kellogg and Meridian.  Officers received information of a large physical disturbance on Kellogg and an off-duty officer being on the scene.

Through the investigation, police learned a road rage incident occurred between Inkelaar, who was driving a black pickup, and a 63-year-old man driving a white pickup. 

Police say Inkelaar stopped in front of the white truck on Kellogg, exited his vehicle, ran toward the other driver, and they got into a physical disturbance. 

An off-duty community service officer observed the incident, stopped, and alerted witnesses to call 911.

Inkelaar was arrested without incident and booked into jail.  Inkelaar and the other driver have minor injuries.

The case will be presented to the City of Wichita Prosecutor’s Office.

Last Thursday, a driver on west Kellogg said that another driver pulled alongside his vehicle and fired one shot through his window. The victim was cut by shards of glass.

Police say they found the other driver and questioned him.

We asked police if there are any updates in that case. They say they are still investigating it.
